Overview

Digital transformation is the leading factor for many organizations rapidly adopting the cloud. By 2020, majority of the workloads will be in the cloud, whether public, private, or hybrid.

As many organizations undergo this transformation, they find themselves struggling to keep up with an environment that is more complex and needs less air gaps to enable automation in their security management.

FortiManager product demo

FortiManager allows IT personnel to maintain control over Fortinet’s security and networking devices through an easy to use, centralized, “single pane of glass” management console. Administrators can fully control the deployment of security policies, FortiGuard content security updates, firmware revisions, and individual configurations for thousands of Fortinet devices. In this demo, you will see how devices are registered, how policies and objects (along with policy packages) can be enacted, and how devices can be configured and updated easily.

Management FAQs

Does FortiManager manage FortiAnalyzer? 

Yes. This is the recommended deployment, actually. When FortiManager is managing FortiAnalyzer, all FortiAnalyzer interface tiles come up alongside FortiManager tiles, enabling all workflows.    

Should I go with FortiManager or FortiCloud?    

FortiCloud is a cloud-based service that streamlines deployment, management and reporting for FortiGate and Unified Access products. It is a simple solution that provides the basics of management and configuration. FortiManager (and FortiAnalyzer) is the full-featured central management solution for Fortinet products. Advanced configurations, workflows and reporting (through FortiAnalyzer) are available here. Your organization’s needs will dictate whether a simplified cloud service or full-featured appliance (hardware or virtual) that you manage is a better fit.    

If I only have a few FortiGates, do I need central management?      

While all FortiGate configurations can be done locally, the time saved managing elements of or a complete central policy is a strong benefit in going with FortiManager. FortiAnalyzer greatly extends reporting and analysis capabilities for FortiGate both in breadth by combining data from multiple FortiGates into a single perspective, as well as in depth with much longer reporting horizons and advanced features found in Event Manager and the FortiGuard IOC service.
